Karori Arts & Crafts turns 50 - what a celebration!

Thanks to all the members who joined us to celebrate this significant milestone in our history.  We had the privilege of sharing the day with no less than eleven former Presidents as well as our current President Claire Nicoll.  our Patron Sue Clothier also shared a few thoughts and was thrilled to represent Dorothy and Stanley.  Natalie and Matthew Clayton who were founding members from 1967 also joined us.  Formal thank-yous have been sent to the many people who helped us commemorate this milestone. Photos will be included in the first newsletter of next term as well as on the noticeboard once the Newman Centre re-opens on Monday January 15th.

Thanks to Mark Berger for the photo of the cake table with our benefactors Dorothy and Stanley Newman's photo in the background.
